Unwanted Registrations

Recommended Posts

The last few days i have a lot of unwanted customer registrations. It  looks that there are some registration bots running, i blocked the IP's but stil new unwanted registrations. In the last name they register a www. domain, how to block this? Is there a solution too not accept "www." in the last name registration?

I have the same unwanted Customer Registrations from the same spammer.

I'm not a coder, just a copy and paster! Can you please tell me which is the correct code to alter as I am confused?

I think a good  To-Do-List for this is necessary,  @Traumflug  maybe you can arrange some advice for this?   Seems not to be that easy to find out what to do with these Github things,  i have also some difficulties with it.

Its very easy to make github changes: 

  1. Open the file (you see it beside the green and red sqaures. for example: classes/Validate.php)
  2. You remove all the red lines in the code
  3. You add all the green lines in the code.

Yep, but in all 3 Github links is the same file which should be changed, but with different changes  (classes/Validate.php)  , think this is very strange for some people.  Or am i wrong, hopefully not  :)  regarding i will do this changes in 1-2 days.

btw. will there be an update for this  (i think it will be included in the next, but not sure when this will come)?

OK, I think I got it.

The two GitHub validate.php files looked different because one was an update of the other. Once I found the one that matched my own validate.php file and saw the 'updated' link to the other GitHub validate.php file it made sense.

I also changed the validate.js files in my shop.

Thanks for all your time and input, it is sincerely appreciated.

I was getting hit with these too.

Fix was really easy to implement.
Thanks a lot for releasing this so quickly.

You do all 3 of these.
Do this one first:
https://github.com/thirtybees/thirtybees/commit/c733d5360d5292c12bb6a899748d9094bc608e05

Then this one:

https://github.com/thirtybees/thirtybees/commit/7ad147d991861e498e586f4dfc8ad1ff

Then this one: (also edit the .js file here)

The patch of course works, but it seems to also disable the phrase c/o, which is a very valid and common way to ship in the USA when you're shipping to an address that isn't yours. Although it still works in the company box.

why you guys don't use a TB native module called reCaptcha? You can set up a reCaptcha validation during the registration process. I faced the same spam-registration problem, installed the module, since that no unwanted registration anymore.

I use the captcha module for contact form. But I wouldnt do that for registration. For me its too risky, that it fails or people cant manage it :classic_unsure:

also coreupdater can be used to fix this

Manual fixed the problem in Validate.php. Coreupdater doesn't fix the problem, after update (1.0.8) problem is back.

@datakick probably means an update not to 1.0.8, but to Bleeding Edge / 1.0.x. That's currently pretty stable.
